“Mindfulness begins with ourselves. Learning how to generate a feeling of joy, learning how to generate a feeling of happiness, learning how to handle a painful feeling or emotion, listening to the suffering to allow understanding and compassion to be born, and suffer less. This is the first step”. (Happy teachers Change the World. 2017. Thich Nhat Hanh, pg. 195)
Contemplative practices come in many varieties and can be found in many traditions. They are the way that human beings across cultures and across time have found to concentrate, broaden, and deepen conscious awareness as the gateway to cultivating their full potential.
I invite you to start a personal practice, help yourself to this 10-week program and begin to develop or deepen your attentional meditations. It’s all good, just the way it is. Process, journey, product, attitude everything shifts with an intention. Questions? email me happy to be of service.
